Jim Harrison's epic tale of three brothers and their father living in the remote Montana wilderness early in the 20th century came to the screen in 1994 with a lot of passion and sweep, if not not a lot of sense. The story starts about 1913, when Samuel Ludlow (Thomas) brings home a gorgeous fiancee named Susannah (Ormond) from the university. Both his brothers are attracted to her, and tension rises until the First World War breaks out and Samuel dies on the battlefield. Oldest brother Alfred courts Susannah in earnest, but untamed Tristan takes her to bed. When Tristan goes wandering, she marries Alfred, who becomes a US Congressman, but violence and suicide will tear the family apart. British Columbia and the area around Calgary and Morley, Alberta stand in beautifully for untouched Montana.
